    Ok, so here is the video of the guy casing my truck at 3:39 Am this morning. I apologize for the F bomb at the end, but I was pissed off. I have posted it everywhere to help catch this guy. Any help would be appreciated.

    You might be a lighting geek, but you're not a computer geek.

    You forgot to include the video pointer. You posted it everywhere but here.

    This is probably more than just a simple theft. Somebody is probably trying to put you out of business or screw with you real bad. Just one of the pitfalls of being high profile. You get a little success and you can bet there will always be some jealous low-life pr**k looking to take it away from you.

    Look at your enemies first- any past employees with a grudge, local competitors.

    This is a personal attack.

    Maybe they just know you have the good stuff and want to take it... That video shows part of his face really good. I heard his car drive away. Is there any way you can put a camera near the street (like in a tree) to get license plates of those approaching your property?

    Tommy, this sucks. These guys need to get CAUGHT!

    Unbelievable. Certainly does seem like a personal attack. I agree with the others on checking out previous employees etc.

    believe me we are looking at everyone. They know that your insurance will replace your radio and take that one too. The space for the radio was covered by a clipboard, that is why he is hanging out for so long. He is trying to figure out if I replaced my radio or not.

    did I miss something ? F bomb ? Could it be he was checking out your flashy led lights on the dash? Usually if they are looking to steal tools they will go for the bed.

    I sure would be tempted with fantasies of how to booby-trap the area around the truck so as to either catch the guy or make him forget about ever coming back.... something connected to a motion sensor maybe... involving disabling pain but nothing lethal or permanent.... hmmmm....

    I recall a vehicle alarm that has a proximity sensor on it. I think it was call a Viper or something like that. If someone comes too close to the car and does not move along a signal voice asks them to leave the area, if they do not then the alarm sounds a few seconds later. It also senses if the vehicle is touched, moved, etc.

    Or of course a big dog with a loud voice who lives in the truck could be the trick! :)
